We had the good fortune of connecting with Stephanie Salgado and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Stephanie, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk taking is essential to growth, I have never changed my life by playing it safe or keeping my life the same. To me the bigger the risk the bigger the reward.

It can be so scary to come out of your comfort zone and take a leap of faith on yourself but the fear is worth it. Without it I would have never created a 6 figure business on my own.

Whenever I get those butterflies in my stomach, that scary feeling full of what if’s running through my head, I know I’m about to change my life.

Not every investment or business plan has worked out perfectly for me. I’ve definitely taken some hits over the last 5 years in business, however they have always taught me a lesson and I’ve grown mentally stronger because of set backs.

If you’re afraid to take a risk; do it anyway because even if you loose you really win.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m most excited about expanding my business hiring more employees and creating an even bigger place to enjoy beauty services. What sets us apart is our love for interior design, to merge a unique style and environment for our clients while giving exceptional service. We pride ourselves in full relaxation techniques while giving a medical grade facial service.

I’ve learned not to compare my business with other professionals, we are all so unique and that is what makes our industry so beautiful we all bring something different to the tabel to benefit our clients and there will always be enough clients for all of us.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Some of my favorite places to eat would be breakfast at “The Eating Room” then going for a walk/hike in fulmor lake one of my favorite lakes to fish and relax. Then back down town for dinner and drinks at olive and citrus for the best steak dinner you’ll ever eat!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My Mom is the reason I became an esthetician. Before her passing she supported every single business idea big or small. She cleared out her room for me every morning to do facials on the weekends from her home.

She was a huge part of my journey and I am so greatful for her.
